AIA-LA & SO-CAL NOMA | J.E.D.I.
What is J.E.D.I.?
A joint AIA|LA and SoCal NOMA committee with the purpose of advancing issues of justice, equity, diversity and inclusivity within the architecture profession where:
JUSTICE is acknowledging and denouncing racism, removing barriers, and promoting equitable opportunities in the profession for all individuals;
EQUITY is allocating resources to ensure every practitioner has access to the same opportunities and outcomes;
DIVERSITY is encompassing an array of practitioners who represent varied experiences and perspectives;
INCLUSIVITY is fostering a sense of belonging for all voices and perspectives to feel welcomed, respected, supported and valued to fully participate.
J.E.D.I. Committee’s Mission/Function:
We seek to advance issues of justice, equity, diversity and inclusivity within the architecture profession. The committee can find itself most productive as a body to listen and understand the deeper issues, to facilitate and inspire commitment and action, to develop programs and initiatives that influence mission-congruent decisions, and to demonstrate progress through findings of measuring, reporting and accountability tools.
